P3iD Technologies

The very nature of the document imaging business these days, is almost always hybrid environments. Simply because there is a physical document scanner, which is on-premise, connected to a chosen cloud service. And since scanning documents often involves confidential company data or even regulated data, P3iD chose to partner with a company that offered the highest levels of security for hybrid environments, and Xiid fit this requirement perfectly. The first integrated solution we have developed with Xiid is P3iD DoxaScan using the Xiid Identity Management (Xiid.IM) technology which our customers absolutely love.

P3iD feels this is merely the starting point in working with Xiid to take many of our proven traditional imaging technologies and deliver them as secure cloud services with the realization of perfect forward secrecy networks. We are engaged in many areas where Xiid’s current, as well as future technologies, can be of high interest including encryption, blockchain, secure API and, of course, secure-channel communication protocols. It’s imperative to have a go-to partner such as Xiid that is so knowledgeable in so many areas regarding cybersecurity. More

With data breaches happening every day and causing damage to your brand, tangible economic loss, and termination of employment for executive management charged with oversight, enhancing security without compromising user experience is a priority for today’s organizations. Multi-modal biometrics for user authentication handles this requirement and that’s what ImageWare does. We have invested substantial time and effort into making the implementation of biometric security simple, quick, and cost-efficient.  Being a pioneer in biometrics, with several decades of experience, ImageWare has built its brand through deployments in law enforcement applications, later migrating to secure biometric credentialing, and more recently, to authentication in the cloud using smart mobile devices. At the heart of all of our product offerings is the patented IWS Biometric Engine® (BE), which provides an ultra-scalable, real-time, multi-modal biometric enrollment and matching database specifically built for biometrics. The BE supports a dozen different biometric modalities today and adding new modalities is simple and straight forward. As we say, “we secure your future,” meaning that we not only satisfy your current security requirements, but we also secure your investment as new biometric technology becomes available.  We treat biometrics as “plug and play,” so you can take advantage of new advancements with no loss to your current investment.

We are close to completing the transition from being a product-led business to a solutions-led business. The breadth and sophistication of the product set we have is becoming difficult for the traditional integrator to communicate to their user base. Increasingly, the product manufacturer needs to be involved in selling the solution to ensure the requirements are met and the value proposition is fully explained.

We are finding complementary markets for our products where integration opportunities are helping companies with different aspects of their businesses. For example, intrusion integration, fire integration, BMS, space management and heat and light are all part of security. Our Symmetry products can integrate with these solutions and help users meet compliance, mitigate risk and save money. Our long-term strategy remains the same: to be a long-term valued partner and provide continuous value to our customers. More

There is no silver bullet. A committed attacker will always find a way. Your best defense is a balance of both protection and detection. When bad things do inevitably happen, your detection capabilities will enable you to find the threat quickly and mitigate the damage. Our focus in Cisco Security is to automate as much of this process are possible for organizations so that once a new threat is identified, it is automatically blocked across not only the enterprise, but also the entire Cisco user-base. In doing so, we multiply the collective wisdom of our customers, partners, and our deep bench of talented threat researchers. More

SecuritySolutionsWatch.com: Thank you for joining us today, Steve. One will read at Identiv.com, that “ Identiv’s mission is to secure access to the connected physical world: from perimeter to desktop access, and from the world of physical things to the Internet of Everything.“ Seems to us that significant traction has been achieved with one (1) billion transponders deployed, 5,000 customers, $500 million of equipment in the field, 400 hundred partners. Impressive metrics, indeed! Care to elaborate? Steve Humphreys: Absolutely… and thanks so much for inviting me to tell Identiv’s story. I think we’re all familiar with the convenience of the digital world — the world where Netflix knows what you want to watch next and Amazon knows what you're going to buy next. Identiv’s vision is to bring the benefits of the digital world to the physical world. We have a variety of products and go-to-market strategies that are putting us in a leading position to deliver those benefits. We see a major market opportunity as the physical world goes online, and we want to be the leading platform to get there. That's a big statement to make for a small company, but as you pointed out with those metrics, we’re in a great position to do just that. More

The Munich Airport system is a paradigm among airport security systems. It was designed around a single centralized and virtual data archiving system, accessible to anyone with permission anywhere on the airport network, and uses behavioral analytics to trigger alarm, camera management (zoom into the picture, follow a suspect, increase image resolution etc.) thereby reducing the number and scope of ‘People-Watching-Cameras’ and providing a massive saving for the airport operators. The system installed was placed by a Dell EMC partner in a public competitive RFP, so value as well as functional excellence was a determinant of the solution choice. We are given permission to reference this system and use it for show-&-tell visits and in our sales meetings with new and existing Customers. The airport has since expanded the system beyond the original scope and size of the original purchased hardware, emphasizing their commitment to our solution and their happiness with it. More

Existing cybersecurity architectures are failing due to two macro trend cloud computing and mobility. The endpoint is inadequately secured and the adversary often has a footprint within one’s perimeter defenses. We must pursue a strategy of intrusion suppression wherein we can decrease dwell time and this detect, deceive, divert and hunt and adversary unbeknownst to the adversary. To achieve this an organization must: employ application whitelisting, employ an endpoint protection platform, establish a Hunt Team and roll out deception grids. Employ Deceptiongrids.More

The access control and intrusion market is still a fragmented landscape, so yes, I think consolidation will continue to make its impact on the industry. Mobile credentialing seems to be a hot topic for the industry, along with the continued focus on cloud-based technologies. The demand for these solutions comes from customers wanting new levels of security and convenience while protecting critical data. With regards to mobile credentials, however, there's still a lot that needs to be done to develop this technology further, and as a result, many companies are choosing to implement hybrid solutions that offer mobile as an option. Another trend we will continue to see is a greater focus on integrated solutions; more video tied into access control, for example. We'll also see the increased use and installation of wireless locks to more doors as a means to reduce cost.More

Cyberattacks have risen into the many millions of attacks per year, yet security continues to be perfunctory to the organizations overall data strategy.  It is astonishing to me that some analysts estimate that 60% of U.S. enterprise organization DO NOT have encryption strategies applied across their organization.  Hackers and their tools are very sophisticated including some with automation and its coming from many fronts you just listed.  This is precisely why an organization or enterprise must have the most secure and hardened environments possible.  Hackers and bad actors will eventually probe and eventually move on to the easier targets.  Don’t be that easy target when tools like Cloud2Drive are so easy to implement and non-disruptive.  More

Isla represents an entirely new approach to cyber security.  Until now security solutions have always been based on detecting “bad things” and blocking them from running. Anti-Virus tries to detect “bad files”, Web Filters try to detect “bad websites”, the list goes on and on. Isla takes a different approach to the problem. Instead of detecting “bad” things, Isla simply isolates ALL web content in a specialized environment located outside of an organizations sensitive network.  Since ALL content is isolated no attacks can ever “slip through the cracks” and compromise the user. This is a simple, yet powerful approach. Since organizations vary so widely, Isla is offered in a number of ways to suit each potential customers’ needs. Isla can be deployed as an appliance directly at a customers’ office, it can be deployed in a customers’ existing cloud data centers or it can be delivered as a pure Cloud service by a Cyberinc Isla Cloud Service partner. More

Las Vegas was a terrible tragedy and does trigger additional discussion on security, especially for protection of people and saving lives. There is no doubt in my mind more screening in public and private physical entrances and exits will be required and mandated. Other countries, enterprises and communities outside North America are already taking the step to enhance their security. In many regions of Europe, Africa and the Middle East, hotels, public facilities such as shopping malls, museums, sports venues, concert halls, etc., have x-ray scanners deployed. Asia is following and I expect North America will not be too far behind. As more awareness is given to the role of x-ray scanners in these domains, AI and analytics will be play a key role in the automation and predictive detection of threats to all. More

Cisco

We at Cisco are fully committed to the IoT, and we believe the IoT must be secured for its promise to be realized. Securing the IoT is easier said than done, though. The first complication is that most IoT devices can’t protect themselves. To be fair, there are a number of reasons why they can’t, but from a cybersecurity perspective, those reasons don’t matter. A vulnerability is a vulnerability is a vulnerability. And these vulnerabilities create ample opportunities for an attacker to exploit those devices and gain access to your network.“  More

Utilities are especially popular, high-profile targets for attacks. According to the Cisco Security Capabilities Benchmark Study, 73% of utility IT security professionals say theyve suffered a public security breach, compared with an average of 55% in other industries. Most U.S. utilities have already undertaken substantial security measures throughout many parts of their systems. However, the nature of cyber threats and vulnerabilities keeps changing.  U.S. utilities have, for several years, been deploying IoT technology (aka Smart Grid) because it enables significant business and operational benefits: increased grid reliability, enhanced integration of renewables and other distributed energy resources, reduced operating costs, and more. However, all of this opportunity comes with the tradeoffs of increased complexity and new risks.. More

HP Enterprise Services, U.S. Public Sector

There are three key challenges our clients face today. First, cyber threats are ever-changing and becoming more sophisticated by the day. Cyber terrorism and targeted cybercriminal activities are directly impacting both the public and private sectors. They are persistent and yet, based on our research into exploit trends in 2014, attackers continue to leverage well known techniques to compromise systems and networks. Many vulnerabilities exploited in 2014 took advantage of code written many years ago and adversaries continue to leverage classic avenues for attack against client-side and server-side applications. Anti-virus signatures only catch approximately 45 percent of cyber attacks—a truly abysmal rate. In our review of the 2014 threat landscape, we find that enterprises most successful in securing their environment employ complementary protection technologies. These technologies work best when paired with a mindset that assumes a breach will occur instead of only working to prevent intrusions and compromise from the perimeter. So our clients’ security posture must be agile and responsive to better defend against threats —internal and external—in addition to vulnerabilities, in order to mitigate their risk...More
